When I was about 20 years old something strange happened to me. I'd just finished coming from my friend Jose's apartment. I would probably go home at 1am. I'd knock out after that, but this time was different. I was restless and uncomfortable. I was tossing and turning and as I opened my eyes I could see a tall man from the corner of my eye.
He was standing at my door wearing what appeared to be an old school business hat. I was paralyzed, I couldn't move or speak, all I could see was this tall shadowy man with a hat. Was i dreaming? No! I was very much aware of my surroundings. He or it wanted me to see him. He wanted me to be afraid, mission accomplished.
Shortly after that my father, who left my mom while still pregnant, decided to pay me a visit. I'd probably seen him 3 times, if that, within 20 years. He told me he was dying of liver cancer and if i could find it in my heart to forgive him. I told him what he wanted to hear then he thanked me and walked right into the liquor store across the street.
I then thought to myself the man in the hat was probably death coming to visit.
